    I just visited the Zoo in Rheine, Germany. The first two pictures were taken with my old 135/2.8 Revuenon. The last one with the SEL1855. Hope you like them!


    See her lovely eyes :D My wife, however, was afraid of this loose llama


    This little friend has pretty deep eyes


    Monkeyshots are just classic...

    More pictures of my trip to the "NaturZoo-Rheine" can be found here!

    Love the 1st image, the eye is super sharp and the OOF is very soft and lovely, not to mention the Llama's eyes look very cute :D

    It's the first one.
    The prize on ebay is unbeatable... but i have to admit that pictures taken with the revuenon look a bit blueish! (all photos shown here are edited with lightroom)

    Here is one straight out of cam picture I just shot with the Revuenon (f/5.6) (just to demonstrate the quality):

    A (bad) comparison: A shot with the 18-55 at 55mm:
